Good food in fair proportions with excellent taste. Most of the Italian plates expected and more. Also provides take-out.

Again, it was a wonderful night at Marcellos for myself my wife and two other couples. It was a first time for the other two couples and they raved about the food. Comments were made about Bend not having Italian food like this. I am sure that all of us have not tried all the restaurants in Bend however this... More

Excellent food and service. Calamari was great. Manacotti was great with a white wine. Desert, a Huckleberry Cheesecake was excellent. When in Sunriver, don't miss this Italian jewel.

We love Marcello's and usually eat there a couple times during our visit. This last visit we brought some close friends with us and we were so excited to share our favorite restaurant with them. Our experience however was a let down. We made reservations and we were sat promptly but we sat and sat and sat before we were... More

I'm so terribly sorry you were disappointed in your most recent visit. Nobody can be perfect 100% of the time, no matter how hard we try, and it seems your experience suffered for it. That saddens me. It seems you were here on a busy night and the timing was not the best for optimal service. For instance, we try... More

We have dined at Marcello's many times and have had them cater a family event. The food is very good. We particularly like the calamari and the bar menu option to build your own pasta dish. The wine list is excellent and Thad, the owner, is very knowledgeable about his wines. We usually eat in the bar area as it... More

We had friends from Seattle visit us in Sunriver and they wanted Italian food. They said this was as good as any Italian restaurant in the big city. We had a back room table and enjoyed the privacy and less noise. The service was impeccable and the food was marvelous. We enjoyed pork osso buco, steelhead over linguini and wonderful... More

Our family of 5 had dinner at Marcello's Sunday evening. Reservations were a must to eat at 6. Ask for the back room as it is more spacious than the front nooks. Our server was quick and attentive. They accommodated special requests. Drinks were fairly poured. We had appetizers, but you have to wonder why they only bring 4 prawns... More

A family reunion was held in the upstairs area in August. Ages ranged from 1yr to senior citizens. There were 20 in attendance. The accommodations were arranged in advance. The Place was ready for us. You can't go wrong with any selection. The service was outstanding. Everyone ordered a different dish. Pasta, Fish, Chicken, Spaghetti(for the wee ones).Desserts were delicious.... More

We decided that the pizza is very good at this restaurant and would order again. Service very slow the night we visited and the special seafood risotto was heavy and had very little flavor

This is not a typical resort style restaurant; rather, it is one you might find in a large city tucked away in a small neighborhood. All food is fresh every night. Most ingredients are local (Northwest), the varied menu features fresh fish every night, and the daily wine offer ($25 per bottle) is a very good deal (never disappointed). This... More
